Own Goal: Football Mad

2-1 with minutes to go: Dale Juniors are about to win the schools’ cup final – until Scott foots the ball into his own team’s goal. But letting down the team is the least of Scott’s problems. After the match, someone leaves him a nasty message on the wall – and the suspect? His best mate Danny. It’s all going downhill from here. The drama of football and friendship take to the pitch in this action-packed sporting novel from top-selling author Paul Stewart. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+.
